Dan Savage, author of Savage Love, a widely syndicated sex-advice column, got a letter in March from an 18-year-old college student who indicated that his parents "grew up" reading Mr. Savage's column. The letter writer stated that he "felt weird" about asking "his parents' advice columnist" for oral sex tips. The young man's real name and the name of his college were both included in the e-mail. Mr. Savage had the young man killed. Mr. Savage does not regret this homicide.

Here's a suggestion, Deal with It.
(Seattle, January 5th) The Stranger — a Seattle alt-weekly which has extensively covered recent accusations of plagiarism by celebrities and clergy — was hoist on its own petard yesterday when a blog post on its website was revealed to be lifted from a Canadian paper.
The seemingly satirical post attributed to Mayor Ed Murray turned out to be copied word-for-word, with only the names changed, from a December 2010 guest column in Toronto’s NOW by that city’s then-newly-elected mayor, Rob Ford.
How could you?
Don't stop being a giant asshole.
The purpose of this entire article is The Stranger trying to highlight their "zingers" over the past many months and create some new ones.
This is definitely a new low by the Strange-r folks.
Leave the Mayor alone! He won by a landslide, for Pete's sake. And he hasn't even been in office for a week.
Lighten the fuck up. Or go take a rest on the fainting couch or something. But don't mewl here, it just makes you look dumb or ignorant. Or both.
Murray will probably rise or fall on whether they get tunnel more than 1/3 done before the next election and what the obvious cost overruns are by that time, that is, if there is an opponent who is trying and isn't tainted by their own prior votes.
@29 "A landslide"?! What are you calling a landslide? A few points?
Dan had some poor kid killed and totally doesn't regret it!! Oh this is sooo bad!!
